As many of you are aware our beautiful Valarie has been diagnosed with stage 4 small cell carcinoma. Her battle started about 4 weeks ago when she was experiencing back pain and thought perhaps she had a broken rib. Her visit to the ER uncovered what was really going on and her world as she knows it changed in an instant. I personally have only known Valarie for less than 6 months. She was hired at the company I work for to answer phones, recommended by her dear friend Heather. We fell in love with her in a quick minute. Her wit, her intelligence and her truly sincere love for people shown through immediately. We have been blessed to know the beautiful woman we now call friend. I have set up this page as a way for Val to give us all updates throughout her fight. This minimizes the amounts of phone calls, texting etc. that can be draining when you aren’t feeling well. This also allows us as her friends and family to offer her words of encouragement which will be nice for her to read during her long hours receiving chemo. Thank you and God bless you all as we pull together and stand beside Val while she kicks cancers ass!!! We love you Val!
